OPINION: While it may seem like every time we turn on the TV or read the news, we’re reminded of our country’s division, there is common ground that we can, and should seek, for the benefit of the immigrants in our Florida communities, and our state overall.  Government inaction has stalled progress many times in the past and will likely continue to do so, but for those in our communities like Dreamers, who close to nine in 10 Americans support providing a long-term legislative solution for, this cannot stand. We need to ensure Deferred Action for Childhood (DACA) recipients, immigrants brought to the country through no fault of their own, and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, immigrants who have been offered protection for decades, are provided a legislative solution finally offering them permanent protection.
OPINION: A new year and a new governor provide a hopeful backdrop for fresh approaches for sustaining Florida’s economic growth and creating opportunities for its people but a small pack of trial lawyers would rather pit Florida communities against energy companies over climate change. They think we can sue our way around this challenge but litigation would only mire our state in counter-productive confrontations with employers when cooperation on finding solutions is needed.

Episode 162: Changing Course

THE ROTUNDA – former Republican Gov. Bob Martinez said Florida’s environment has been neglected for eight years and he's excited about the swift change of course with Gov. Ron DeSantis. Martinez also shares his concerns with seeing Florida’s public education system being starved of resources in favor of competition and suggests ways for more equitable reforms.
OPINION: Once again, a government agency has sued a public records requester – this time the Orlando Sentinel – simply for making a request for public records. That’s just wrong. The lawsuit arises out of the very important public controversy the paper has been covering concerning Frank Kruppenbacher, a prominent Orlando lawyer, who resigned as the lawyer for the Florida Virtual School in August.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A major South Florida landowner will be back in court on Tuesday asking a judge to override a final order by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection against their request to drill an exploratory oil well in the environmentally sensitive Everglades.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – President Donald Trump's partial government shutdown to secure a southern border wall has increased the strain on the U.S. immigration system – including in Florida. More than 60,000 immigration cases are in limbo in Florida, part of a record-high backlog that tops 800,000 cases nationally. Judges have been forced to indefinitely postpone hearings that were scheduled months and years in advance, since most immigration courts are closed in the shutdown.
